As a preacher there's always 3 messages you struggle with: The one you want to preach, the one the devil wants you to preach, and the one God wants preached. Often times, the first two are what wins out. There's a difference between what we call meddling and preaching the Word. Preaching is when you use exhort the Word itself and let it fall where it may fall...you simply give the message and the HOLY SPIRIT does the calling out and convicting. In meddling, it's the preacher who jumps in and does the calling out...trying to force/shame somebody to "getting right" WITHOUT the convicting power of the holy spirit. The sooner one realizes the difference, the better off they'll be. When I first started preaching I didn't know the difference between the two. Now I do. Preach on sin out of the Word and let God do the convicting and finger pointing...not the preacher. God forbid that I ever use the sacred desk as a chopping block to hurt people or call them out!! It's not the place for it and not the way to handle it, and not the preacher's duty.


Crow,

You and I have had our differences. And although I'm not a church-goer nor even a Christian, your post above is truly inspirational.

Good post.

Agreed. That was beautifully said.
